Several days ago I clicked on "Code question of the day". In general the question had to do with feeding a sub-panel from a service entrance panel 20 feet away. Take off lugs were going to be used to feed the sub-panel which had a 100 amp main within the panelboard. Providing the installation was compliant with NEC Article 240 tap rules I don't see a problem with it. My question has to do with is it code compliant or not, not if it's a good design practice.

Bill,

Were you able to click on my web page address to access my little drawing that illustrated my posted question? Bjarney could not. It opens right up using my computer. Did I make a UBB code error in posting?

Frank,

It doesn't work for me. I don't know why? I get the same message as Bjarney. I would love to see drawing but can't. I thought I was helping by posting a link to CQofD.

Maybe someone can explain why some can see and some can not?

Frank,

I can still see it fine. It comes up in a new window when I click on the link you gave. ??? [Linked Image]

Anyway, I copied and moved it to ECN:
